DSEK or DMEK? Choosing the best for patients with corneal edema
Careful consideration must be given to the timing and choice of surgery in eyes with corneal edema.
Dropless cataract surgery effective choice without compliance issues
Dropless prophylaxis in patients scheduled to undergo cataract surgery seems to be more practical than and as efficacious as the standard of care for use in this patient population.
New technology takes invisibility cloak off in retinal imaging
New imaging technologies, such as ultra-wide-field fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography angiography, are providing more details about retinal diseases than previous imaging technologies, leading to better understanding of disease processes.
ILM peeling with retinal staining aids macular hole closure
Peeling of the internal limiting membrane with staining of retinal tissues might help macular hole closure and resolve retinal schisis.
4 pattern recognition skills that are relevant in clinic
Knowledge of pathologic patterns is necessary in medical retina, especially patterns that are unusual or rare. Pattern recognition skills are essential in medical retina. Lawrence Yannuzzi, MD, highlights four patterns that he believes are relevant in clinical practice and should be recognized–and not missed–by retinal specialists.
Managing viral eye infection: What clinicians should know
Though much research is happening in the diagnosis and treatment of viral eye infections, much of it might not be readily apparent to clinicians, explains Todd P. Margolis, MD, PhD.
Transzonular intravitreal injection eases treatment burden after cataract surgery
Transzonular intravitreal injection eases treatment burden after cataract surgery
An intraoperative injection of a compounded formulation of triamcinolone acetonide, moxifloxacin, and vancomycin eliminated the need for supplemental postoperative medications in the vast majority of patients who underwent phacoemulsification and IOL implantation.
Intracameral phenylephrine/ketorolac superior to intracameral epinephrine
Phenylephrine 1%/ketorolac injection 0.3% added to ophthalmic irrigation solution and administered intracamerally during cataract surgery was associated with a statistically significant reduction in surgical time, intraoperative complications, and use of pupil dilating devices and with a statistically significant improvement in best-corrected visual acuity.
How to manage retinal disease in pregnant patients
How to manage retinal disease in pregnant patients
Pregnant patients require special care and surveillance when retinal diseases are present.
Paradigm shifting for ILM peeling, prone position after vitrectomy
Peeling of the internal limiting membrane has increasingly become a dogma of surgical retina, while maintenance of the face-down positioning may become anachronistic in many cases.
